Ich möchte Dich wiederum um ... Dein Urtheil darüber bitten, ob die Darstellung in beifolgenden Fahnen, welche die Fortsetzung zur Mineralkunde enthalten, einfacheren Vorstellungen entspricht und auch klar genug ist und auch keinen Lapsus enthält ...

        Reflections in a Golden Eye. Introduction by Tennessee Williams. The New Classis Series

      182 (1 ) p., Kl.-8, Hardcover/Pappeinband Einband leicht fleckig und angestaubt, Buchblock sauber und gut, auf dem fliegenden Vorsatz mit Widmung und Vorname der Autorin : For Elizabeth* / with my love / Carson". Elizabeth ist Elizabeth Bowen -Elizabeth Dorothe Cole Bowen (* 7. Juni 1899 in Dubli - + 22. Februar 1973 in London) war eine irische Schriftstellerin. Als Kind zog sie mit ihren Eltern nach London. Nach der Erkrankung ihres Vaters und dem Tod ihrer Mutter wurde sie ab 1907 von ihren Tanten aufgezogen. Ihr erstes Buch, Encounters erschien 1923. Von 1940 bis 1952 lebte sie in Dublin. Bowen entwuchs einer protestantischen, anglo-irischen Familie, die die Sommer auf dem englischen Familiensitz Bowens Court, die Winter in Dublin verbrachte. Der Schwerpunkt ihrer Romane lag auf der kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit der gehobenen britischen Gesellschaft, deren Zerfall sie beschreibt. Der Verfall der gesellschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen spiegelt sich in ihren Figuren wider, rast- und ziellosen Gestalten, die häufig Sinn- und Beziehungskrisen durchleben. Bowen wird häufig mit Virginia Woolf verglichen, mit der sie auch befreundet war, und, nicht zuletzt wegen der detaillierten psychologischen Beschreibung ihrer Charaktere, mit Jane Austen. Carson McCullers (* 19. Februar 1917 in Columbus/USA - + 29. September 1967 in Nyack/USA eigentlich Lula Carson Smith) war eine US-amerikanische Schriftstellerin. Lula Carson Smith war das erste Kind von Lamar und Marguerite Waters Smith. Seit sie zehn war erhielt sie Klavierunterricht 1930 beschloss sie, Konzertpianistin zu werden. 1932 erlitt sie einen ersten Rheumaanfall ein Krankheitsbild, das ihre Gesundheit für den Rest ihres Lebens erheblich beeinträchtigen sollte. Im selben Jahr beschloss sie, Schriftstellerin zu werden. Ab 1933 verfasste sie Erzählungen und Theaterstücke. 1934 verließ sie Georgia und zog nach New York, wo sie sich an der New York University für das Fach Kreatives Schreiben immatrikulierte. 1936 erschien ihre erste Erzählung, Wunderkind, in einer Zeitschrift. 1937 heiratete sie Reeves McCullers und zog mit ihm nach Charlotte in North Carolina. Im selben Jahr begann sie mit der Arbeit an ihrem ersten Roman The Mute, die sie 1939 abschloss. Ebenfalls 1939 schrieb sie einen zweiten Roman Reflections in a Golden Eye. 1940 wurde The Mute unter dem Titel The Heart is a Lonely Hunter (deutsch Das Herz ist ein einsamer Jäger) veröffentlicht und Reflections in a Golden Eye erschien in Harpers Bazaar. Der neue Titel für ihr Buch The Mute (Der Stumme) wurde ihr vom Verlag auferlegt. McCullers gefiel der neue Titel allerdings sehr gut. 1941 verschlechterte sich McCullers Gesundheitszustand erheblich. Sie litt an Herz- und Kreislaufproblemen, Sehstörungen und teilweiser Lähmung, hinzu kam eine Lungenentzündung. Ebenfalls 1941 leitete sie die Scheidung von ihrem Mann ein 1945 heirateten die beiden jedoch erneut. 1946 erschien The Member of the Wedding. 1947 erlitt McCullers zwei Schlaganfälle der zweite lähmte sie linksseitig. 1948 versuchte sie sich umzubringen und wurde in New York in ein Krankenhaus eingewiesen. 1950 fand die Uraufführung des Stücks The Member of the Wedding in New York statt, das noch im selben Jahr den New York Drama Critics Circle Award für das beste neue Stück erhielt. 1951 erschien die Novelle The Ballad of the Sad Café. 1953 gab es eine erneute Ehekrise, die zum Suizid ihres Mannes führte. 1955 hielt sich McCullers mit Tennessee Williams für einige Zeit in Key West auf, wo sie unter anderem an Theaterversionen von The Ballad of the Sad Café und The Square Root of Wonderful arbeitete. Letzteres wurde 1957 in New York uraufgeführt die Resonanz fiel jedoch gemischt aus. 1961 erschien der Roman Clock Without Hands. McCullers war zu dieser Zeit bereits meist an den Rollstuhl gefesselt (Wikipedia)

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1899 - 1899 Original Hardback Wisden, Very Good Condition

      1899. Hi, This lot is an 1899 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the fourth year of the hardback and an extremely hard copy to find, especially in this condition. Since 2006 I have seen 6 for sale and one of those was without a plate. The front board is very clean with excellent gilt, the rear board is pretty much mark free and the spint gilt is very bright. There is a very outside chance that the 18 of 1899 has been regilded on the spine but I may be being paranoid. The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns in top condition, two small nicks to the front right. The photoplare is very good and internaly a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. A rare Wisden in superb condition and a very nice price.

        Chesapeake Bay, York River Hampton's Roads Chesapeake Entrance

      Published by the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, Washington D.C. 1899 - Engraving. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of a large in filled tear in the upper margin. Another expertly mended tear on the bottom margin. Image size: 37 3/4 x 27 1/4 inches. A fascinating sea chart of the Chesapeake Bay, produced by the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey. In response to the growing need for accurate coastal charts of America, Thomas Jefferson signed a bill creating the United States Coast Survey. Founded in 1807, the agency was responsible for conducting detailed surveys of the coastal areas, which were then carefully recorded in large navigational charts. These charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued American vessels. Ferdinand Hassler, a young Swiss engineer, was selected to establish the new agency, but various obstacles meant that the actual surveying did not commence until 1816, when Hassler began work on New York Bay. Hassler was succeeded by Alexander Dallas Bache who dedicated himself to surveying the country's extended coastline. Under Bache the quality of the engraving and lettering in the charts achieved a high standard and the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey became a permanent, and heartily supported government function. The work of the Coast Survey not only resulted in the most accurate charts of America's coastal waters, but pioneered the techniques and equipment used by later surveyors in mapping the interior of the country. Conducted under S. Pritchett, who ran the Survey office for only three years before becoming president of M.I.T, this detailed chart covers the Chesapeake Bay including the York River, and the Hampton Roads waterway. Water depths and sand bars are all carefully recorded, as are the various lighthouses along the coastline. Tides, soundings and buoys are also noted as well as weather signal stations and life saving stations. This is an important sea chart of this area and wonderful example of the maps produced by the United States Coast Survey. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Intellectual Life

      The Roycrofters, East Aurora 1899 - Large quarto. original three-quarter brown suede over brown ribbed boards, lettered in gilt, spine with three brown gilt lettered morocco labels, upper edges gilt, others uncut and untrimmed, pale gray endpapers. The initials are drawn and coloured by hand by Minnie Marcie. No. 542 of 960 copies, signed by Elbert Hubbard. Inscribed by James Whitcomb Riley and dated "Indianapolis Feb. 21, 1900." Also with four lines of poetry in Riley's hand "And you are one, as dawn and sun - / As noon and shine - as dusk and deew- / As bloom and fragrance; - therefore one / My praise and prayers of you.". Philip Gilbert Hamerton (10 September 1834 Ð 4 November 1894), was an English artist, art critic and author was born at Laneside, a hamlet near Shaw and Crompton, Lancashire, England. His mother died giving birth to him, and his father died ten years later. When he was about five, he was sent to live with his two aunts at an estate called the Hollins on the edge of Burnley, where he attended Burnley Grammar School.Hamerton's first literary attempt, a volume of poems, was unsuccessful, leading him to devote himself for a time entirely to landscape painting; he camped out in the Scottish Highlands, where he eventually rented the former island of Inistrynich in Loch Awe, upon which he settled with his wife EugŽnie Gindriez, the daughter of a French republican magistrate, in 1858.Discovering after a time that he was more suited to art criticism than painting, he moved to his wife's native area in France,[where?] where he produced his Painter's Camp in the Highlands (1863), which was very successful and prepared the way for his standard work on Etching and Etchers (1866). In the following year he published Contemporary French Painters, and in 1868 a continuation, Painting in France after the Decline of Classicism.He had by now become art critic to the Saturday Review, which necessitated frequent visits to England, forcing him to give it up. He proceeded (1870) to establish an art journal of his own, The Portfolio, a monthly periodical, each number of which consisted of a monograph upon some artist or group of artists, frequently written and always edited by him. The discontinuation of his painting gave him time for writing, and he successively produced The Intellectual Life (1873), perhaps the best known and most valuable of his writings; Round my House (1876), notes on French society by a resident; and Modern Frenchmen (1879), admirable short biographies. He also wrote two novels, Wenderholme (1870) and Marmorne (1878).In 1884 Human Intercourse, another volume of essays, was published, and shortly afterwards Hamerton began his autobiography, which he brought down to 1858. In 1882 he issued a finely illustrated work on the technique of the great masters of various arts, under the title of The Graphic Arts, and three years later another splendidly illustrated volume, Landscape, which traces the influence of landscape upon the mind of man. His last books were: Portfolio Papers (1889) and French and English (1889). In 1891 he removed to the neighbourhood of Paris, where he died suddenly in Boulogne-sur-Mer, occupied to the last with his labours on The Portfolio and other writings on art. -wikipedia.

'The small, dilettantish magazine did not pay its way and ceased publication after only five monthly issues in 1899' [\i Australian Dictionary of Biography ]. This set is numbered (13) and inscribed by Stephens on the upper free endpaper in his characteristic purple ink: 'Fred Johns with kindly wishes. 4/5/6 AGS.' (Journalist and biographer Frederick Johns, 1868-1932, is best known for compiling the biographical dictionary \i Notable Australians , which eventually became \i Who's Who in Australia ).

After Stephens left the \i Bulletin in 1906, he went on to produce two further series of \i The Bookfellow . 'In all, and almost single-handedly, Stephens brought out 123 issues between 1907 and its demise in 1925. \i The Bookfellow represents an idealistic and courageous attempt to satisfy the need for a quality literary journal, and when it failed there was a cultural gap until the appearance of \i Southerly and \i Meanjin in the 1940s' [ADB].
